New Guilds Wars 2 profession revealed: the tinkering Engineer!

Josh Augustine at

Mad scientists, rejoice! The latest profession announced for Guild Wars 2, the Engineer, will let you mix chemicals, create robot monstrosities, and otherwise wreak general mechanical havoc on the world around you to your heart's content! Described as a "master of mechanical mayhem," the Engineer looks to be a mind-blowing mash-up of multiple Team Fortress 2 classes and Belle's dad from Beauty and the Beast with a thirst for war. These tinkerers have a wide array of weapons and tools at their disposal to help allies and control enemies, along with some crazy mechanics that let them swap out their skill bars and use temporary weapons on the fly.
